Center console is not appealing with tall wall and switches.

The steering wheel reminds me of the C4 wheel.

I don’t know if anyone said this when the original CarScoops leaks hit the forum, but it looks like every control on that “wall” is related to the Climate control system.

I don't think its exotic level nor should it be for the price but it doesn't look chevy... more like cadillac or mercedes.

Looks like luxury car interior and not something that belongs in a sports car.

A major improvement in the interior. I like it.

It doesn't look like a super-car interior though....

The tall wall may contain a structural member.

Radical revision on the Vette interior theme -- I have a hard time seeing any inspiration from prior Vette generations. I guess that makes sense for the first-ever ME.

WIll be interesting to see how it works in the real world. Looks like everything driver-related is "right there." As somebody pointed out, only the climate control stuff, which for me at least is kinda "set and forget," is in that stack which might be a tad-bit cumbersome. But, after a few days, who cares?

The wheel definitely will be an acquired taste. But, I expect to see it in person in a couple weeks so the process will begin then

Any thoughts on what the silver button with a “Z” is on the left side of the steering wheel?

The fact that it doesn't look 'Chevy' is the best thing about it. Actually, I'm diggin the interior minus the steering wheel.

Wait, this doesn't look anything at all like the interior of the Camaro.

It seems to me that those buttons and switches on the wall may be easy to hit by mistake.

Looks great. I don't see how they could ever put a manual transmission in this car with this layout.

Zero emissions button where it kills the engine and you coast for bit to avoid the gas guzzler tax.
